98% guarantee WORKAROUND: For Trees getting stuck in the air or when colliding during fall
As I wanted to investigate into what could be in relation to trigger this issue I found a workaround for 2 problems which seems to have the same root cause.


Solution
Stand as far away from trees when chopping. Keep the most possible maximum distance while still being able to focus and hit the tree. Some thing like this:

There are no trees getting stuck in the air anymore doing it like this and also when trees fall they wont fall into the direction of others trees so collision getting them stuck won't happen anymore.

99% guarantee this workaround works for all of you. Tested during a regular game session with saving and also tested on a fresh new island from a fresh new game session. 1% non-guaranteed because there's still a chance on some systems that method doesn't bring ease. The risks ... :steamhappy:

Thank you for this workaround... the tree cutting/falling mechanic will be reworked in the future to a little different system to eliminate such issues ...

It would seem that this work around does not work for all trees lol.. I will make a video and send it in showing that it still happens with a certain animation.

That is true. It does not work in every situation. Travelled across 3 islands with each about 40 trees on them, so basically I chopped down over 100 trees each in 2 different sessions (one new game, one saved game) and the hit rate is all trees except for 1.

With that being said and out of pure blasphemy I correct my statement of 99% down to a 98% guarantee :steamhappy:

Lol no worries. Sent in the video of which animation is causing the troubles! Im glad to see someone testing the issues as they are being reported, and giving feedback.
